The vast majority of these gun homicides are committed in low income urban areas with illegal handguns.

I generally agree.
I oppose the "bullet buyer database", and I oppose the "Mandatory life for shooting a first repsonder", not because I want first responders shot, but because I strongly oppose any law that starts placing higher value of certain lives over all other lives, it's just not somethign I agree with (same goes for supposed "hate crime" laws that punish the massumed motive, not the crime itelf, thsu creating unequal life values).
With that said, it's all in the details. On it's face, most of this is liveable.....in the actual codified regulations to come......it could be horrificly burdensome. You just don't know yet.
